Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of death among women and also one of the most preventable diseases. Studies have shown, “More than 12,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with cervical cancer each year, and more than 4,000 of women will die.” But due to awareness and prevention, there has been a decline in death by 2 percent. This 2 percent is due to yearly PAP tests to test for abnormal cells and allowing further treatment based upon test results. Lets take this time to fully spread awareness and encourage women today to schedule their PAP screening in the continuation of preventing cervical cancer.
